A Feliz Navidad for children

Jan 12, 2012

Our friends in Central America were busy over the holidays.

In Guatemala, Amway employees held a celebration for 39 children at the Hogar San Jerónimo Emiliani children’s home in the capital city. They delivered groceries and medicine, and celebrated the holidays with Santa Claus.

In El Salvador, our employees spread holiday cheer for 100 families at San Luis la Herradura in La Paz. The families received groceries hand delivered by smiling faces on Christmas Eve during a holiday celebration.


Employees in Mexico continued an eight-year tradition of collecting rice, beans, milk, cereal and other food items to send to children and their families that live in the Sierra Tarahumara. The team worked through the Fundacion Tarahumara Jose A. Llaguno to deliver the supplies high in the mountain areas of Mexico.

Another eight-year tradition near our headquarters office in Monterrey, Mexico, employees prepared a “Posada” (Christmas party) for 100 children at the Casa Imperio de Amor. The festivities included a holiday meal, piñata and, candy, and of course gifts given by Santa Claus and Amway volunteers.

      Is there anyone in the Atlanta GA area who would be able to help my son Matt. He is 26 but badly needs help with math tutoring and learning. He has a great many challenges with learning bit wants to get his GED. Is there anyone in the Amway business that could help him, encourage him and help him believe that he can make it at this late date? He is a very discouraged young man and so need a man in his life somewhere that could believe in him and help him gain confidence. I don’t know who I’m writing this to, but I’m praying to find an Amway person who will help us. Do you know of someone in the Atlanta, Marietta area that would be willing to help once a week? Thank you, a mother (Linda)My email is Lcconyers@bellsouth.net
